Hi

I was just wondering whether anyone does a full-time job, and then another one on the side?
I am trying to work out whether it would be worth it - regarding extra tax etc.

In a full-time Mon-Friday job I earn £1590 after tax.

Working weekends I could make around another 400 - 450 pounds but after tax it would probably be a lot less than that.

I need a realistic way of increasing my income and the only thing I can think doing is taking on an extra job.

I have done writing jobs in the past in my spare time, and whilst this can bring in some OK money, it is not always available..

Anyway, does anyone else do two jobs? how do you find it?

    It can get complicated synchronizing time off from both jobs for holidays etc

    Whether it is worth it to you or not after tax is entirely subjective. Do you have a specific use for the money -without a target to motivate you it can get very demotivating very quickly

    Thanks for your reply, I am only aiming to do it for 6 months maximum, the incentive being to pay my debts off asap
